2:02 am
and he was right america is seeking extradition and if you watch enough t.v. you surely know why his russian connections can we address the question at hand and that is whether or not you can say definitively that russia had no part in this. was trying to sabotage the twenty six thousand election and have these facts in front of them saw assad as an agent agent or at least since that russia is using wiki leaks as a delivery vehicle for hacked e-mails and other information it was everywhere on every pundit slips for years assad's weekly spew to russia meddling echoed and echoed by everyone important enough to be on camera like us leaders it's time to call out wiki leaks for what it really is a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia they've acted in concert with the russians to interfere on our elections to help

government house to. state all the charges they tend to charge mr sashi with extraditions to. feel to you mr sargent's us that ransom. about united states government or their charters just consider this if the us had any of it anything tying has signed to russia or meddling or conspiracy do you think they would have shown it to mentioned it this is it this is the unique charge he faces and because of how extradition works they can't add any more charges if they get him. the extradition work. needs to go at that stage but except charge aside for example. the extradition court u.k. not extradite somebody to wes you know the charges that are probably going to. not
2:05 am
exist there's no charge. so the extradition court makes very clear we're only going to extradite on those charges are sent to us and. we just i guess direct your sosh. states. which are on the. balance six are going by what lawyers and experts are saying the u.s. doesn't have a steep precedent where journalists can be jailed for posting classified material no matter how vital like the manning files.
2:06 am
this remarkable as it may be the u.s. is now saying that exposing u.s. human rights abuses wanted murder committed by the u.s. military exposing that is more serious than the abuses and murder themselves chilled formally bradley manning was freed by a bomb up but judging by the toxicity on t.v. in washington. shouldn't be too hopeful but you never know trump is trump wiki leaks i love wiki leaks. state police forcibly remove tucson's from the equator. an embassy in london as we saw it came after king stripped him of his that chlorine citizenship and revoked his asylum which was granted almost seven years ago ecuador says the sanch violate the terms of his asylum in multiple ways the country's former foreign minister ricardo patino claims

2:08 am
the full interview later on saturday. the home secretary said to germany ahead of the release of further or further arrest of said he's right be facing justice in the u.k. where he's not facing justice in the u.k. other than for breach of bail which is a very minor offense usually dealt with by a guy or a few weeks in prison these politicians so maybe he will stir up the judges to give him a couple of months but the justice that he's facing in is justice or in justice in america which wants him and has charges really for up to forty five years imprisonment the trump argument is this that the first amendment which protects journalists for him asli only apprise to
2:09 am
american journalists and doesn't apply to any foreign journalist even those working for american papers in fact given goodale who was the hero of the pentagon papers case he was the lawyer for the new york times he came out of retirement be up a day and he said the case however much you dislike. his case is the most important for media freedom since the pentagon papers case where one of the biggest revelations of the leaks published by a science concerned alleged us war crimes in afghanistan the international criminal court has been looking into similar accusations for a while now but has just decided not to open an investigation into the matter the i.c.c. claims that doing so now would be counterproductive. the judges decided that investigation into the situation in afghanistan at this stage would not serve the interests of justice the i.c.c.
2:10 am
noted the lack of cooperation that the prosecutor has received which is likely to go skate. should an investigation be authorized hampering the chances of successful investigation and prosecution of the us president or trump ale the decision is quote a major international victory for the rule of law the us has refused to sign up to the i.c.c. slamming the court is exercising unaccountable powers of prosecution the i.c.c. says there are reasonable grounds to suspect war crimes were committed in afghanistan that is based on a preliminary investigation into the issue and in two thousand and six washington recently revoked an entry visa for the prosecutor responsible for human rights watch slammed the court's decision saying it is a devastating blow for the victims of atrocities in afghanistan antiwar activists. says the i.c.c. has no power against the us i don't think that an entity like an i.c.c.
2:11 am
would be able to bring those charges to the front and i think it will look back at the new take on yugoslavia taken small countries in africa maybe countries in latin america become trees and south asia but taking on the united states i mean i i mean you i guess the president to that would be the case with the signs right now this is this is not only a down it's down but we have to look at did they do they do anything about iraq you know there was a legal occupation with the invasion just like a pianist in this case is not the first case that points that out i think i think there's quite a few cases and there's quite a few precedents to show that i.c.c. is actually not capable of. bringing the real actors sort of western countries had to mons to the table and actually charging them with crimes.

of. speaker oliver now religious violence and is on the rise in france but the spike in attacks against minorities however the line share of the incidents in the country target christians something the mainstream media's coverage does seem to mrs charlotte devinsky now explains. anti religious attacks are taking place on an almost daily basis in fronts but while some incidents seem to attract a lot of attention others are largely being ignored according to the french observer. for be summary twenty nineteen was the worst month for churches in france and state began collecting data in two thousand and fifteen but in addition to churches other public christian symbols have also been targeted for example summit crosses on mountaintops public crucifixes been destroyed or vandalized and public
2:23 am
statues of jesus and the virgin mary have been decapitated or destroyed and according to the observatory in france anti christian attacks have sharply risen since the beginning of twenty nineteen this is paris is historic seoul suit peace last month a fire here briefly caught the attention of the media. it didn't take long for an investigation to say the attack was deliberate and cause nearly a million euro receive damage but take a closer look at how it was reported by some news wires the headline reads the church briefly catches fire. almost a month later the story doesn't appear to have been updated suggesting that
2:24 am
a deliberate attack on one of paris is the largest churches just wasn't backed newsworthy at the same time other anti religious attacks not only make the headlines they state. the latest official figures from the french government gave us a better insight into what's happening in twenty eighteen there was a sharp rise in the number of anti sematic incidents five hundred forty one that's up seventy four percent compared with twenty seventeen the incidents were broken down showing what they were related to including murder violence and threats anti muslim acts to it at one hundred a low since twenty ten meanwhile the number of anti christian acts reached one thousand and sixty three a slight increase compared with the previous year no further detail was. what was shocking to me was the almost casual way that the ministry described it saying
2:25 am
quote the number of anti-christian acts is stable over the year when the interior minister downplays or. seems to sideline the acts against christians it fuels the assumption that only minority religions deserve protection unquestionably the increase in anti-semitic attacks is of serious concern but by many as minimizing the number of anti-christian incidents and providing no details the government signals in a not so subtle way that this is less important it's unclear who is carrying out these attacks or why they are taking place but there's real concern that the way that the french government and the media generally underplay them means that they could be being significantly underreported meaning the true scale is still unknown so it didn't ski r.t.
2:26 am
